pen and ink

pen and ink and water wash. Haven't had the time to paint this week. After visiting my friend Laurie's blog, I thought it would be fun just to do a pen dipped in India ink and then brushed with water. If you want to see some beautiful oriental brush painting visit Laurie's blog. She also does beautiful work in acrylic.


  1. oh Joan I love it! Simple and yet really atmospheric and strong in terms of values. And I know what you mean about not painting much in the past few days!

  2. Lovely. It's nice to meet another artist! Especially one who enjoys ink like I do.

  3. Hi Joan. This is one beautiful painting.
    You have kept it simple and it has worked
    beautifuly. This painting says it all.
    Well done my friend.

  4. Hi Karen, thank you and yes it's the holiday season and it's a challenge to get some painting in the course of the day.

    M.M.E. just stopped by your blog and it is very interesting. I will continue to enjoy. Thank you for the kind comment.

    Hi Vic, as you can see, once again I'm in a hurry. I am consolidating all my responses. Thank you Vic as always your support is appreciated. Now I am off to paint a giant cauliflower.

    Happy painting everyone.


  5. Joan, I hope to show you my lastest acrylics. Your advice is always very helpful. A student of yours, Vince
